Fans are well aware of the fact that only four top sides will see the best of the season. Historically, it has been the Top Six and that hasn’t brought frustration. Slipping away from the club’s values, breaking ties with the fans and boring gameplay are the major factors that contribute to the frustration. Newcastle is a burning house and fans don’t approve of the takeover. Both the blue and red sides of Manchester are at the top four. Marcelo Bielsa should review his tactics before it is too late. BettingPremier’s take on the week’s EPL games follows.
Brentford vs Chelsea
On a three-game unbeaten streak, Brentford host Chelsea at Brentford Community Stadium in an interesting encounter on Saturday. The field doesn’t reflect Chelsea’s position at the table. A lack of goals from the midfield and Romelu Lukaku being left out in the front are few reasons for the Blues slowing down. Christian Pulisic, Lukaku and Reece James are off due to injuries. Fans feel Thomas Tuchel overthinks things which spoils the fun. A brilliant entry to the Premier League, Brentford are sitting at seventh position in the table. Ivan Toney, Bryan Mbeumo and Yoane Wissa have scored two goals each so far. The hosts are in a good shape, enough to share the spoils with the Blues.
Watford vs Liverpool
Watford and Liverpool lock horns with each other at Vicarage Road on Matchday 8 of the Premier League campaign. Staving off the relegation zone, Watford have lost three of the last five games. The Reds lost to Watford in the previous meeting, during the season before last. Ismaila Sarr who scored a brace against Liverpool is still in the club and is the leading goal scorer for Watford. Oghenekaro Etebo is suffering from muscle issues and he will miss the game. Liverpool shared the spoils with Manchester City 2-2 in a to and fro game which the Reds dominated in the second half. Mohammed Salah is in fine form and he might be rewarded with a 500,000 Euros per week contract. The Egyptian forward is a massive presence in the box and none in the Liverpool dressing room will flinch if the offer is made. Liverpool has already extended the contract of key players like Virgil Van Djik, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Jordan Henderson. On the treatment table for the weekend are Diogo Jota, Harvey Elliott, Thiago Alcantara and Alexander-Arnold. Jurgen Klopp won’t be much bothered about Watford and will claim a victory with ease.
Man City vs Burnley
Etihad Stadium will witness a casual game between Manchester City and Burnley this coming Saturday. Two sides with opposing mindsets and philosophies meet this weekend. After a slip up in the Champions League, City proved their dominance against Liverpool 2-2. Kevin De Bruyne found the equalizer in the 81st minute. The result of Chelsea’s game with Brentford will affect Manchester City’s position in the table. Behind City are the Red Devils, tied with the same points. The lack of a striker is evident in City, Pep Guardiola will adopt the false nine approach till then. Ilkay Gundogan, Oleksander Zinchenko and Benjamin Bendy will be on the sidelines. Hungry for their first victory, Burnley are third from last in the table. Sean Dyche’s methods have become outdated like the players in Burnley’s roster. Goals are hard to come by for Burnley, Chris Wood has seen the net only once this season. Manchester City will feast upon the travellers.
Leicester vs Man Utd
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer takes the Red Devils on a trip to the King Power Stadium to face Leicester on Matchday 8 of the Premier League. The Foxes aren’t cunning as they used to be. Brendan Rodgers is far from his best and Jamie Vardy is the lone warrior at the front. Leicester haven’t delivered a convincing performance yet this season. Wilfred Ndidi and Jonny Evans are on the injury list. Receiving criticisms for his move of benching Cristiano Ronaldo in the first half of the Everton 1-1, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should tread every step lightly hereafter. United win games but their victories don’t resonate with the quality in the pitch. Jadon Sancho hasn’t found a grip yet, Ronaldo has five goals and Mason Greenwood has three goals across all competitions. The injuries are a big concern. Raphael Varane, Harry Maguire, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Amad Diallo and Marcus Rashford are on the list, the latter might stay out for a long time owing to a shoulder problem. United are the on the road favourites for this fixture.
Newcastle vs Tottenham
New owners of Newcastle will have their first game as the club face Tottenham at St. James’ Park this coming Sunday. Confused fans are supporting the takeover, or rather blind to the allegations upon the owners, Public Investment Fund in Saudi Arabia. A deal has been reached about the piracy issue by the Premier League but supporting a nation’s head who perpetuate values against human values isn’t a good thing ever. Opinions aside, Newcastle will get a huge inflow of money and Steve Bruce might have to bid farewell with the club. Callum Wilson, Jonjo Shelvey, Jamaal Lascelles and Frederick Woodman are on the treatment table. A brace from Harry Kane in the Europa Conference League against Mura 5-1 appeared to be a return but the England captain failed to register a mark in the Premier League again. Though Spurs triumphed over Aston Villa 2-1, the decisive goal was an own goal born out of a howler. Nuno Espirito Santo’s approach is timid and isn’t satisfying for the Spurs fans. Son hasn’t been on the scorecards enough, only goals can save Tottenham. Spurs are favoured by the bookmakers.
Arsenal vs Crystal Palace
The Gunners welcome Crystal Palace with the newfound hope to Emirates Stadium on Matchday 8 of the Premier League. Mikel Arteta managed to turn the tables with three on the trot victories followed by a draw before the international break. The Gunners were thrashed at Etihad, Arteta’s former club where he worked as an assistant coach. Aaron Ramsdale is denying goals while uplifting the mood of the side. The captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is living up to his position in the club. Granit Xhaka is nursing a knee injury. After a commanding display against Tottenham 3-0, Liverpool made Crystal Palace understand their place in the league at Anfield 3-0. Two draws followed and Palace will be eager to return to the winning ways. Three points separate Arsenal and Palace, the latter might surprise if the Gunners misfired. Nonetheless, Arsenal won’t give up easily and aim for three points.
